My wife and I spent three days and two nights with our two children (3 and 5) during the August long weekend. We had a one bedroom suite that overlooked the village. It was a great size room for our family with all the amenities that we needed for our children. Our children loved looking over the balcony into the village and listening to the music in the centre of the square.
We were able to do the water park (plunge) the gondola ride to the top of the mountain and various other activities by the pond.
The water park was a lot of fun (much smaller then Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls)and our kids really enjoyed it. They have a water slide that seemed very appropriate for our 5 year old to go down by himself children and our 3 year old loved going down with me.
The open air gondola ride was great. Once on top we were able to explore the sites and walking trails.
The activities at the pond were enjoyable however , I was a bit turned off by the poor attitude of the staff. We had a hard time trying to get help with renting a paddle boat and also one of the toy motorized vehicles they rent.
I think what bothered me more then anything is that they don't issue receipts (at the pond)and only take cash money. I wonder if this is to skim cash and not pay taxes on the money collected (CRA if your reading, this great place to visit). On all three days there, we were not able to get receipts even after I requested it (sorry this bothers as a tax payer).
Three days was a perfect amount of time for us and we plan on coming back next year for a three day visit.
